Now that it's confirmed that it is possible to "change your stars", I started to view the line "he had eyes like a fox's" differently now.
What if Ata was onto something? What if Pomenes isn't the Rabbit Disciple, but instead the Fox Disciple?
Didn't Temis said something about when her kids come back they have to fight her? Is that why Arces doesn't want to go back? And does that mean Ata will have to fighther as she is her kid and is coming back?
Well, this is Arcas's territory, he only came back to his mother's to ask her for help defending it from Calydon. But who knows if that rule about fighting applies to Ata!
All the comments based on Temis future death made me remember how you can be cruel with your characters and now I start fearing the next parts xDDD Awesome job as ever
I progressively worry more for Temis! Although if there can be just one disceple for entire species, then this is surprisingly high disciple density in this one patch of land achievable by walking
prediction: mama-bear is going to be fully blind and feeble. She won't be fully prepared for winter and now can't get enough food for her fat stores. Ata will try to hunt for her, possibly get her wolf sibs to help, but it's not enough. Mom hibernates when winter comes... but never wakes up after.
You can prepare for winter by nice juicy boar meat
That body should last a good while
The bear star said that many lacked the strength that Ata had
Maybe Arcas is an example of that
Rather than fight, he runs
